Abstract

What (political) geography ought to be. Political geography between peace and war Geography has been often accused of being a discipline useful, above all, to make war. But, at the end of the Nineteenth century, Kropotkin already envisaged a totally different use of geography, which, on the contrary, ought to be an instrument for mutual knowledge and understanding. The paper explores the complex relations between different attitudes toward wars (from the acceptance of it as a prosecution of politics to the total refusal of violence of modern pacifism) and the chances of using political geography as a tool for justifying war or for making the conditions of a future of peace

What (political) geography ought to be. La géographie politique pendant la paix et la guerre La géographie été asouvent accusé d’être une discipline utile, d’abord, a faire la guerre. Cependant, à la fin du XIXe siècle, Kropotkin a envisagé déjà une utilisation radicalement différente de la géographie, qui, au contraire, doit être un instrument de connaissance et de compréhension mutuelle. Cette contribution explore les relations complexes entre les différentes attitudes de les géographes vis à vis des guerres (en partant de l’acceptation de la guerre celui-ci comme une continuation de la politique pour arriver au refus total de la violence du pacifisme moderne) et les chances d’utiliser la géographie politique comme un outil pour justifier la guerre ou pour créer les conditions d’un avenir de paix
